"No Communication you need guess work in this place"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Anything else?

Talked to as if i was stupid by doctor when he was trying to explain something that was very obvious, he was also impatient when he couldnt find what he wanted as in

"The Diagnosis", this makes you feel a fraud. Very cold doctor no compassion. They just want to hear what they want to hear, so you feel like saying yes when you mean no and no when you mean yes.
